...about the weather...
In case nobody's noticed, I have a tendency to comment on the weather in Pointless Announcements. Thought about making a thread, but never did. Today I decided that I simply [I]must[/I] do it.
So, the weather's been really fucked up and sort of spastic the last couple of days. I'll be raining in the morning, pouring even, and then the next time I look out a window it'll be totally sunny and the rain will have dried up. And then later it'll rain again. That's what it was like yesterday. It rained in the morning, and then at some point it was even too warm for the three relatively thin layers I was wearing and then I switched to two layers and then while I was on the bus it started to rain again. And then stopped.
Today was kind of the opposite. It was dry but cool and windy in the morning and then it started raining later and then it dried up and then it rained periodically in tiny amounts for a while. And then it stopped. And started again. And then I was on the bus and it was still raining but not very hard and then there was lighning outside, except I wasn't sure if it was lightning, but then it happened again [I]and[/I] there was thunder. Really cool because we usually just get rain. And then I got off the bus and was standing at the bus stop waiting for another bus to take home and the lightning continued and the thunder was really loud and you could actually see the lightning in the sky, which was really cool. And it got brighter and louder and then it started raining harder and then it got even brighter and really loud and it started raining even harder and it was really pouring down. It was absolutely fucking insane. Instant fucking puddles at the edge of the sidewalk. And it was [I]seriously[/I] raining. Wow. Crazy cool. At this point I decided to call my parents to pick me up because I would have a five minute walk after I got off the bus and I would have been completely soaked by the time I got soaked. No umbrella or anything. And it kept on raining and the bus would splash water onto the sidewalk every time it came by. Then it went back to raining relatively lightly, the way it was before I got off the bus. I think it's so cool, though. Fuck. This really loud bit of thunder made some car alarm go off at one point.
Thunder and lightning. Oh yes. A rare treat.
